Response to ismnotwasm (Reply #39)

49. we do this all the time, in our lives, when we choose to not purposely be offensive.

 

do we want to be sometimes? damn straight. and i know that you both, work hard on du not to be offensive and to be civil, and i KNOW you are capable of not being, but that you make the choice and effort to not be. that is not who you are. or how you approach something.

we choose when we are in the workforce, in almost all areas. service. we would not keep a job, if we could not address people in a non offensive manner.

we do it while in public, meeting strangers and interacting here and there.

none of this is an out there concept. none of this is new. just today, we are having a huge push for the acceptance of the offensive. i do not agree.
